Undrafted, Benn played in the British Columbia Hockey League with the Victoria Grizzlies. Originally signing a letter of intent with the University of Alaska-Fairbanks in 2006, Benn deferred and later opted to forgo a collegiate career to remain in Victoria and make his professional debut with the Victoria Salmon Kings of the ECHL in the 2008–09 season. With his younger brother, Jamie, cementing his role as a prominent forward for the Dallas Stars, Benn secured his unconventional pathway up the ranks through the Stars' affiliate's in the ECHL and American Hockey League.
After the 2010–11 season with the Texas Stars, Benn signed his first NHL contract in agreeing to a one-year, two-way deal with the Dallas Stars on July 2, 2011. In the following 2011–12 season, on January 3, 2012, Benn made his NHL debut against the Detroit Red Wings. He recorded his first NHL point, also assisted by Jamie on a goal by Loui Eriksson.
As an impending free agent following the 2015–16 season, Benn opted to remain with the Stars, signing a three-year, $3.3 million contract on June 24, 2016.
In the midst of the 2016–17 season, Benn's tenure with the Stars came to an end after 7 years, as he was traded prior to the deadline to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a fourth-round draft pick in 2017 on February 27, 2017. On March 4, 2017 Benn scored his first goal with the Canadiens in a 4-1 victory against New York Rangers in Madison Square Garden.
